Some genuine singletrack on the classic climb, a tribute to the original trails of the area.

Runner Notes

This is genuine singletrack and is sparsely marked, but easy enough to follow. Trail shoes are recommended in all but the driest of conditions.

Description

After crossing the Holdsworth/Atiwhakatu bridge take the signposted left toward Holdsworth Lookout.

Ascending sharply, this trail climbs to the Holdsworth Lookout before joining the Carrington ridge and meandering down a short saddle before climbing to the classic 'old sign post'.

This a dilapidated intersection for the original track up Mt Powell; keep left to join the current main track Gentle Annie Track above Rocky Lookout.
